Louisiana is well and widely known for its unique blend of music, food and culture. In particular, the Cajun lifestyle in south Louisiana has been long-documented and has developed a personality and legacy of its own.
With New Orleans coming off of a banner year for tourism and with the industry booming in the city and in Louisiana, what and where are the opportunities? How can one get involved? How is the city marketing its great events? What can we expect for the city’s Tri-centennial in 2018, a mere four years away?
This fall, Louisiana voters will be looking at two elections, one for U.S. Senate and the other for Congressman for the 6th congressional District. Obviously, only those registered voters can decide the latter.
Today, is the end of the signup period (except for those who tried to enroll but were unable to doso) and reportedly roughly 7 million people have signed up for Obamacare
On the strongly-conservative WGSO radio talk show, host Jeff Crouere and Stephen Sabludowsky discussed the Affordable Care Act, the pros and cons. The discussion got testy and included callers chiming in to express their oppositions to the healthcare law and implementation.
The interview was also recorded via Google Hangouts, as has a number of the recent Crouere-Sabludowsky, WGSO-Bayoubuzz radio-hangout-broadcasts-webcasts. Here is the transcription. Check the video for the most accurate conversation:

Is "vote for the crook" being replaced by "Vote for the kook"?
How else can you explain the decision by Edwin W. Edwards, four-term ex-governor of Louisiana, who has decided to jump into the ring for the Sixth Congressional District of Louisiana.
Judge Michael Bagneris, candidate for New Orleans Mayor said on Jeff Crouere’s WGSO 990 radio show on Tuesday that he would win outright in the first primary and not be in a runoff with Mitch Landrieu, the current incumbent.
2013 is now history and 2014 provides great promise and opportunities. The new year also means politics galore throughout the nation with mid-term elections.

No doubt, the announcements that Judge decided to quit his position on the Orleans Parish Civil District Courts and jump into the New Orleans elections against a popular Mayor from a famous and powerful political background, is a shocker.
